Explain The End Times

If the gospel is all about the FINISHED work of the cross, why is there so much stuff about the FUTURE? Didn't Jesus defeat Satan? Isn't the cross the reformation? Shouldn't our interest be in what God has done, not what we think he's going to do? I don't get the end times.

The end of times is happening right now!
---Donna on 9/2/09

When Jesus said "it is finished" on the cross meaning that we were all bought and paid for by His blood. If we come to God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ who shed His blood we don't have to be eternally seperated from God. But future events that are to happen is to bring about a final end to Satan and his hold on God's people. To stop to world of pain and death, which God never intended for us to begin with. God always intended eternal life in Him in peace and without pain or death.

James there is one final Antichrist. But in the meantime there are many others some inside the church that we need to be working on right now.

My Job is to work today and prepare for tomorrow but to fight the battles of today now.
---Samuel on 6/9/08

Samual, I guess in that sense, anyone against Christ could/would be called an antichrist. What I see is that only a spiritual being, like Jesus Christ, can be the one and only ANTICHRIST. (After all, who more then Satan hates Jesus?) Yes, he is also the 2nd beast in Rev. 13, but not the first for this one rises up from the people and gets its power from the 2nd beast.

Rhonda and DDMartin, I use 'Strongs Lexicon'. In 1st and 2nd John, the writer (it may not have been John) called those against Jesus "antichrists". (Strongs #500=Antichristos=one or those opposing Jesus Christ.) On the other hand Paul uses another word for 'Antichrist' and this is in 2nd Thess.2:3,8=Strongs #458="Anomos" (without the law). JESUS Himself called this person "Pseudochristos" (Strong's #5580) meaning "The False Christ".)(See Matt. 24:24 and Mark 13:22.)

o 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists, whereby we know that it is the last time.

Satan is behind all of the men who do his will.
---Samuel on 6/3/08

Fran.. I agree. My study showes me that the 'Anti-Christ', is Satan himself. Yes, he uses people to do his work, but he is the one and only AntiChrist.

Where does Gods Word tell you this? Or are your "studies" outside of Gods Word?

the antichrist is mentioned only 4 times and it says MANY antichrists

the beast is Satan
the false prophet will be a religious figure from a powerful wealthy religious system
---Rhonda on 6/2/08

james, I think you're right in that satan is ultimately behind everything that is opposed to God and sinful.
---Todd1 on 6/2/08

james_Rev.20(After the 1000 yrs. Satans released from the pit)
10 And the DEVIL that deceived them was CAST into The Lake Of Fire and Brimstone, where THE BEAST and THE FALSE PROPHET "ARE", and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Satan, AC & F.P= 3
The AC & F. Prophet are CAST into The L o F a 1000 yrs. BEFORE Satan IS.
That is what you should have Learned BY reading his Words, I can Help.
I do know alot of the truths of this Book of Johns.
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 6/2/08

God says his people perish for lack of knowledge. Therefore, study the Word, and then you will get the end times.
---Eloy on 5/31/08

The Antichrist came soon after Jesus died. It is there in the Bible in black and white. That Antichrist has been deceiving people down through the centuries and is deceiving MANY people today. Some people who KNOW he is the Antichrist go to church and act like Christians but are actually Satanists and are working for the Antichrist. God revealed this to me. I knew who the Satanists were in the churches I went to, through the divine intervention of the Holy Spirit.
---frances008 on 5/29/08

The reason we study about end times is two fold. One we have something to look forward too. JESUS is coming again to raise the dead and change this world. We have not just this life but a future life to look forward too.

Second many antichrists will try to convice people they are JESUS. They and false prophets will come to fool those who do not know the scripture. Today walking this world are men who claim to be JESUS. But JESUS said every eye will see him come. Live for GOD everyday.
---Samuel on 5/29/08

This is one of my questions too. Here is what I have learned: Jesus said He was born to testify to the truth and He also said His work was finished EVEN before He died--emm very interesting! Jesus said He was the Passover Lamb. Someone pointed out that the Passover Lamb never died for any sin--emm very interesting! Could it be that the Atonement is in the future? I agree, this is confusing. It also says in Revelation 3 that we must overcome like Jesus did. What does this mean?
---james on 5/29/08

You're making a good point. Jesus made it clear that our attitude towards the end times (whether of the great planet Earth or our own) should be "Occupy until I come."

Remember that the Bible experts of 2000 years ago had it worked out according to their understanding of the Bible what the Messiah was supposed to do when He came. He came, He didn't follow their agenda, and so they rejected Him.
---Jack on 5/29/08

The authority of the Bible is prophesy. Many past prophesies have been fulfilled and 100% correct. Therefore, the end time events are 100% certain. Christians are to be aware of these events as they occur. And the promise from God to protect you is 100% certain. Deep down in your heart you will know. Meanwhile, we are to feed, clothe, and quench the thirst of the poor and needy; spread the Gospel of the Kingdom of God; and show the people how to get there. Do not debate this frivolous issue.

The end times includes the rapture of the church as described in 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-16, the 7 year tribulation period, the 1000 year reign of Christ on the earth. God will create a new heaven and earth after all these things take place.

The end times are about the end of the final conflict between good and evil. Christ died on the cross so that we might have eternal life. But it didn't end the conflict. That ends when Christ returns the second time.
---Wanda on 3/15/07

Dear I would like to encourage you to continue watching and praying because the end really is coming.We have to be worried about the end because it is God's plan.He is giving us time to repent so that we will not perish,for the Bible clearly statees that our GOD IS Merciful and he does not want anyone to die.The past shapes the future,so please dont be demotivated.

the end times is a preparation for us as christians and for the unbeliever to get right with the lord before its to late.yes satan is defeated and we must go on in victory,but the end times still must happen.if these things dont take place it would make god a liar.and we know that this cant be.every thing that gods word says is true and will be accomplished.
---jesuschild379 on 3/14/07

Jesus Christ made it CLEAR in the books of Matthew, Mark and Luke that there would be an 'End of the Age', or "End of Time" as WE KNOW IT! The World will never end, for it is a World without end- as stated in [Ephesians]!
To deny that an end to this Life Style will come is to be Ignorant of the Word [Bible]! The Scriptures make it CLEAR that God will put an End to eniquity when before he makes his Dwelling with Man as mentioned in the book of Revelation Chapters 21&22.
---DePuTy on 3/14/07

we should be worried about doing what God called us to do, worship and obey Him. And get as much done for the kingdom before His son returns. Instead of focusing on End Times stuff that maybe in the future or fulfilled in the past.
---pete on 3/14/07

I think of the end times as when God will pour out His Spirit and His Army will go out as a witness for Him. I can't say I know the future but we as Christians know that time is in His hands

Roger, I understand your concern. Have you taken the End Times bible quiz yet? It helps.
---Ted on 3/14/07

i think the focus on end times is a deception of Satan to keep us from doing our Father's work.
---cindy on 3/14/07

Because Jesus is finished on the cross, does not mean the samething as you are finished, because you instead are Commanded by Jesus to do the works of Christ until that time that either he comes again, or until that time that you too can say, It is finished and you give up the ghost just as he has done.
